Elena’s Hot Cocoa Party!

It’s time for another creative party idea with Elena! This time she created a peppermint-y hot cocoa bar for her family to enjoy while trimming the tree! I would love to join her family for these yummy treats!

Cupcakes in bright red Stitched Scalloped Cupcake Wrappers and gorgeous toppers make decorating the tree a festive occasion! Not to mention a yummy one, too!

Giant Merry Christmas spells out a cheery greeting!

Elena created this beautiful cardinal using Magic Iris Birdhouse Add-On. To add the cardinal’s tuft, she cleverly used a bird wing from another set, Center Picture Window Card Heart Add-On! That is so genius! I love how she layered the cardinal on a black Stitched Ornament, then layered that with a Peppermint Stripe one!

It wouldn’t be a hot cocoa bar without some delicious additions! Elena set out bowls filled with cracked candy canes, chocolate chips and marshmallows!

It’s all in the details! To decorate the bowls, Elena combined Christmas Garland and a tiny Stitched Ornament! I love the pretty chalk board look she gave the ornament, which serves as the label!

Elena combined the Peppermint Stripes Backdrop with our Candy Box to make these uniquely festive treat holders! She shows you how below!

Create the peppermint candy box!

A simple red Tiny Gift Box with a bright white bow continues the color theme! You will find the stitched bow our Stitched Basket set.

Those of you who have been following Elena’s party idea posts may recognize this amazing String of Lights banner! Once you put all that work into creating the perfect Christmas garland you will want to reuse it every year!

I can’t wait to use these great ideas, Elena! Thanks so much for the inspiration!

Latisha‘s shaker card is so minty and fun! She kept to a red and white color story with a bit of happy green for good measure!

Grace created a fun shaker tag to go with her colorful slimline card from yesterday! She colored the candies in the same pastel colors and filled the How You Bean? Shaker Add-On with them and fun confetti! And then to finish it perfectly she added a sweet little Tiny Tag!

Yainea created a minty mice card that is so cute! The You Autumn Know mice are having so much fun sending warm winter wishes.

The combination of Peppermint Stripes Backdrop and Giant Holiday Messages makes it so quick and easy to create beautiful holiday cards! I love Lynnette‘s wonderful red, white and kraft colors, they looks so pretty!

Elise created another fun custom sentiment using Louie’s ABCs and the sentiment from How You Bean Mint Add-On! She used pretty papers from Let it Shine Snowflakes as a background and to add lots of pretty shine to the letters.

Wow, Audrey‘s design is so beautifully festive! She created a wreath using Magic Iris Snowflake Add-On with a Magic Holiday Messages sentiment! The sprinkles of gold across the Peppermint Stripes Backdrop look so amazing, it’s such a great finishing detail!
